The Cavaliers were brilliantly laddish. They were like the stereotypical hormonal English teenage boys on holiday together getting very drunk and chatting up anything female with 2 legs. Then there's the main female characters who rebel against their family dress up a gypsies and try and attract the men and a myriad of all sorts of other people.
All in all, it's a bit like Old Kent Road on a Friday night, but in the 17th century, which makes it utterly brilliant and means that the comedy in it is still as fitting to society today as it was then.
The performance itself was really well done. I was especially impressed with the way they started each act in the bar amongst the audience, so you actually became part of the carnival before crowds all "moved to the next street" (the main theatre) where we took our seats.
It's on at the Southwark Playhouse until 18th July and is well worth a look.
